Extraordinary General Meeting

On Wednesday 18 November at an Extraordinary General Meeting, BRA members voted overwhelmingly (39 to 9 with 2 abstentions) to remain as an independent body and not to dissolve and transfer its assets to the ARA.

There was an informed discussion about the proposal to dissolve which demonstrated the strength of feeling for BRA’s aims and objectives ‘to promote for the public benefit the preservation, understanding, accessibility and study of our recorded heritage’.

A new set of officers is developing plans for some key changes intended to give the BRA a new lease of life.

Further information will be issued shortly.
